PulseAudio is suddenly the darling of the Linux sound world. It's also 
the default in the upcoming releases of Fedora, Mandriva and openSUSE as 

I'm not sure why it's supposed to be so great. I was playing around with 
Mandriva 2008.1 recently and could not get sound at all.

Right now I'm running Hardy and I've never had sound from day one. I've 
been running it for a few weeks now.

I really hope they get this figured out by release date. No sound is 
totally acceptable.

Sound is working just fine here in Windows however. ;)

I've never used an OS I didn't (dis)like.
